Come join us for an action-packed afternoon!
What truly differentiates Malvern education is the ethos and unique set of values embedded deeply into all aspects of the school. Malvern College Hong Kong (MCHK) will inherit the rich heritage of Malvern College in the UK, which believes firmly in the values of a holistic education, while students will also be able to experience a wide variety of activities outside the classroom, including Sports, Science, Creative Arts, Higher-Order Thinking etc.
Malvern College Hong Kong will hold a series of events for children to engage in different experiences, both physically and creatively. These events will include Rugby, the Forest School, Coding, and Chess. To start with, we have the Rugby Experience Day!
Rugby is fantastic fun! It provides children with equal opportunities to run with the ball, pass the ball and play defence. Rugby is a game of real teamwork. Everyone needs to participate, no one is left out. It is a perfect sport to teach character education because it is built on teamwork and respect.
The skills, knowledge, and experience gained from playing rugby are transferable to the classroom and more importantly, to life. Rugby promotes tolerance of discomfort, the demand for selflessness to meet team goals and creates moments of magic remembered for a lifetime. Quoting from Malvern College’s Master in charge of Rugby, Mr. Nick Tisdale, “Rugby is a sport which creates a feeling of togetherness and building something important in the lives of young people. It entails running freely, diving for the tryline, jointly seeking success, taking knocks, getting back off the floor and going again. Rugby is very similar to life itself.” Closely coinciding with our qualities, especially: resilience, collaboration, and risk-taking, rugby will play a big part in Malvern College Hong Kong’s sports curriculum.
Bring along your sportswear, trainers (without spikes), lots of water, and join us for this fun and exciting day!
